DOE looks to create "innovation hubs"

The Department of Energy's 2010 budget request includes $280 million to set up eight Energy Innovation Hubs aimed at supporting cross-disciplinary research that tackles barriers to transforming the country's energy systems.

These initial eight hubs will focus on solar electricity, fuels from sunlight, batteries and energy storage, carbon capture and storage, grid technologies, energy-efficient buildings, extreme materials, and modeling and simulation. The Department's offices of Science, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Nuclear Energy, and Basic Energy Sciences would host the hubs.
